What do we remember On Remembrance Day? Why do we lay wreaths And hear a bugle play?
This day marks the end Of the First World War; The human race had never seen A war like that before.
On land and sea, and in the air, The conflict raged four years; Millions died, nations fell, Great empires disappeared.
It’s the day to wear a poppy With honour, and with pride, And remember all Australians Who went to war and died.
The Great War ended at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, 1918. Sadly, two decades later, the world was at war again.
